Clutched by Tarrah Anders: I love Gunnar and Sawyer, and I love how Tarrah Anders brings her characters to life so that you feel like you are right there in the story with them! I can’t wait to read more of her writing!

Absolutely recommend this Sports Anthology - there's a little something for everyone. From sweet and swoony to wake your hubby at 1am for a quickie. Sooooo great!!!

Clutch by Tarrah Anders
Sawyer was a character I instantly liked. Plenty of angst and miscommunication in this one. Gunnar was everything you think a pro Baseball player will be plus a bit more.

I was able to read an early ARC of The Change-Up by Maren Lee. A single mom meets a young hot baseball player while she’s just trying to get through back to back shifts at her TWO jobs! She doesn’t know who he is, but she does know he’s hot as hell, and must be good in bed. What she expects to just be one night of fun turns into so much more. The thing is... he doesn’t exactly know how old she is. Or that she’s a mom. Hmm. Wonder if that will be an issue? The perfect amount of sweet and hot all ...more

This was such a unique collection of baseball themed romance reads, I loved them all! As far as anthologies go, I’m usually left wanting more! (<~~ read: I’m a greedy rotten reader who needs ALL the words!) more character development, more details, more time to get involved with the story, you get the idea! Well I’m thrilled to share with you all these authors knocked their stories out of the proverbial baseball park!

Clutch by Tarrah Anders was definitely up my alley. A strong heroin (Sawyer

This anthology made me yearn for baseball season to start! So many great stories, all centered around the baseball field! The green of the grass, the crack of the bat, the heat of the sun, and the sexy men in baseball pants. You'll find a wonderful variety of stories here. Something for everybody!

I truly enjoyed reading Rounding Third: An Anthology in Baseball. The stories were steamy, fun, varied, each one seemed to have a different theme. Don’t get me wrong each one had a fair amount of sex or sexual overtone but they all had different plots and themes. Of course like anything I had my favorites. It would take up too many pages to write a review on each story so I’ll just highlight a few.

Wild Pitch by Kathryn Nolan was HOT, and yet extremely sensitive and captivating. It grabbed me fr

I received an advanced copy of this book with the promise of an honest review.

I love baseball, so an anthology about baseball players is right up my alley. The cool thing about this anthology is the fun little little rating system they have going on. The more flaming baseballs, the steamier the book. And believe me when I say there is something for everyone. Below are some quick thoughts on the stories I had a chance to read.

5 Stars to Rounding Third: A Baseball Anthology.

This anthology was fantastic! Rounding Third features nine amazing, talented authors. While I have been fans of some of the authors, I was thrilled to be introduced to new favorites. In this community we all know how difficult it is to read everything that crosses our paths and interests us. Being a blogger, I find that too often I feel like I'm reading just so I can move on to the next book on my schedule to review it and get that review up on my

I read this in pieces! I really enjoyed this anthology! I really liked that there was a heat rating at the beginning of each story so you could choose the level of hotness you were in for. Each of the authors brought their own greatness to this book! Clutch was so great. Safe was so crazy, had me on the edge of my seat. I am always a fan of great sports romance! To have a whole group of them all in one place! It was a great way to spend the weekend. (and I really like that there was such a fanta ...more

I absolutely love this anthology!
There are some of my favorite authors and I have now been introduced to a few more.
This anthology has everything that you could possibly want, from a good old HEA to some super hot M/M action and even a beautifully sexy menage, that was all beyond amazing. I don't want to spoil this for you but I will tell you that there is something for everyone and has inspired me to look into some new authors and I will also be keeping an eye out for that story that is to be c

While I didn't read all of the stories in this anthology, the ones that I did read had me looking forward to Pitchers and Catchers reporting, the seventh inning stretch and peanuts and cracker jacks for sure. Summer sun, hot guys in tight pants, longing looks and swoon-y moments make for a few home runs for sure.

This Anthology is a HOME RUN! I was excited to see some of the authors I’ve read before be part of this and was introduced to some new ones that I will be looking forward to reading more of in the future. If you haven’t already figured it out these stories are based about Baseball and what I loved is that we’re given so much variety to the types of stores throughout. It’s a perfect blend of sexy, sweet and even a bit of those goosebumps. Well done to everyone involved and what a great way to hel ...more

A fantastic range of stories from sweet and sexy to hauntingly spooky, this anthology has something for every romance fan. There are book boyfriends galore with everyone's tastes catered for. Being English I didn't have a clue what the baseball speak meant but it didn't stop me from loving it. 😂 A brilliant collaboration!

All the bases covered in this one!

I was so excited when the announcement came loud and proud about this baseball anthology. I grew up on the ball field so baseball is in my blood. To say I was excited is a bit of an understatement!!! As the title of this review claimed, it literally covers all the bases. All the tropes of romance are here, in one place, broken down into scorching hot stories for our reading pleasure. There is a little something for everyone!! Second chance, insta love, mystery,

Rounding Third will capture the hearts of baseball lovers and non lovers! Each story is better than the next and you will just keep turning those pages faster and faster to read more and more!

I can’t pick a favorite, I tried, but each was just so perfect in its own way! I loved that each story had a completeness to it that many anthology’s lack, I felt like I got nine complete quick stories that continuously drew me in! You won’t hear me

I received a copy of this anthology and loved the diverse collection of stories from favorites and new authors. My reviews are from my favorites.

Red Stitch: Baseball and the paranormal, a pretty good match. What you think could be a creepy love story is more twisted than ever. Not what I expected at all, very good.

In My League: Fabulous, funny and sarcastic! The typical baseball jock is determined to change the opinion of a very smart woman. He's every man we want all in one and we want to be i

These stories were good. Some hotter than others. Overall GREAT book with great stories from great authors. Mixture of single moms, m/m romance, married couple, playboy.....I totally enjoyed it. My favorite was Curveball by Dee Ellis. Riley and Ashland, they were HOT!!! I loved reading their story. Perfect mixture of books with a baseball player in common. Totally recommend it!!!!!

An anthology of short stories, which grabbed my imagination and my heart strings.
Each story based on a baseball player (& players) leaves you wanting more.
The lead characters are battling emotions and life which they overcome to reach their happily ever after.
Here’s the spoiler .... except for one which ends with a to be continued...
Highly recommend this book.

Only skipped two stories. Maren Lee and Connor Wright. The blurb just didn't piqued my interest.
I liked that they determined the heat level of each story. (With flaming baseballs. Haha!)

This Baseball anthology is packed with steaminess and it has everything, from insta-love to fake fiance, each story has it's own charms and has drama that I can't put it down and I absolutely like it.
I'm not a big fan of baseball and I have doubts starting this one, I'm afraid that I won't like it, but I was wrong, with all those sweet sexy stories and all the hotness, I enjoyed reading this anthology from the first story till the last one.

Meet Tarrah. She’s a contemporary romancer who is all about the feels, with the twists of sexy mixed in between. She’s been writing since before she can remember. Writing was always a passion, that was kept it under wraps, stayed on the backburner and never vocalized or followed through with my desire to be a writer, until she read a horrible book and thought: ‘I could do better than that!’ She ke ...more
